IXIASOFT and Ektron, Inc. announced a strategic partnership. Under this alliance, the companies will co-market and offer integration for IXIASOFT’s TEXTML Server and Ektron eWebEditPro+XML. TEXTML Server is a XML content server designed for software developers who require storing, indexing, and searching capabilities for their applications. Ektron eWebEditPro+XML is a WYSIWYG, browser-based XML editing tool designed primarily for non-technical professionals. Web developers use Ektron’s technology to create a smart Web form environment that is intuitive for users. These technologies bring together XML authoring, storage, and serving capabilities. End-users work in a browser-based, word processor-like environment to create XML content, without even realizing they’re doing so. Content is stored in an XML database and made available for retrieval and publishing. As part of this technology partnership, IXIASOFT and Ektron will coordinate sales and marketing efforts. IXIASOFT and Ektron are both technology partners with Microsoft, offering their technologies to expand the benefits of Microsoft Content Management Server. www.ixiasoft.com, www.ektron.com
